Will Sue "Sue" Dan?

To date, there are some things about what Susan O'Malley herself has termed her "very, very silly" lawsuit that even "Sue" doesn't deny.

For instance, she did advocate the retention of Mohamed Yousry as a CUNY adjunct. And Mohamed Yousry was convicted in a Manhattan federal court of providing material aid to terrorism and conspiring to deceive the government.

O'Malley's defense appears to be that Yousry wasn't a "terrorist," and therefore suggesting that she supported the hiring of terrorists is defamatory.

Is Sue, then, going to sue Daniel Pipes? After all, in a 2005 blog posting, Pipes termed Yousry a "terrorist prof."

We're guessing, however, that Pipes is safe from "very, very silly" O'Malley lawsuits. Why? Because he's not a former CUNY professor who has led the charge against Barbara Bowen and the current leadership of the PSC. So "Sue" has little to gain politically from "suing" him.
